debate between paul ryan and joe biden. it was the highest vice presidential history last time around. our coverage of the vp match starts tomorrow at 8:00 p.m. eastern. cannot wait. we'll see it there. in the meantime, it's time for "the last word with lawrence o'donnell." >> team romney's biggest problem is back and that problem, the one that just won't go away is mitt romney. >> tax, education, reproductive rights. >> you want to know my position on issues, ask me and i'll tell. >> you when you're mitt romney, what's wrong with a little change of heart. >> romney's flipped again. >> it's what he said about abortion. >> a woman's right to chose. >> a new romney promise. >> new policies, new statements, and new beliefs. >> no new abortion laws. >> here's what he told the des moines register yesterday. >> i didn't say that would become part of my agenda. >> here is moderate mitt. where you been, boy? i've missed you. >> basically calling him a liar. >> lied about what? he's been saying this all long. >> my presidency will will be a pro life presidency. >> do i believe supreme court sh
will be generally happy on the progressive side of the aisle. >> let's listen to joe biden talking about his debate last week. >> all of the debates are tough but i'm looking forward to it, i really am. the thing about congressman ryan is he's been straightforward up to everything until now, all of the significant changes he wants to make. we have a fundamentally different view of issues. >> the vice president has been studying up on ryan's real positions and is prepared to call him out oh on his actual positions. >> uh-huh. >> since there is possibly some variation between the romney campaign and the ryan campaign and the old paul. >> the key word in the clip that you just said was straightforward. he's been straightforward in the positions he has had. and so if he stands up there and says that is he pro life, well then biden can go back and say, i'm sorry, so what you're saying is, you and governor romney -- it's daylight between you two on this issue because just yesterday he said that he was fine with roe versus wade. like which is it? who is the top of the ticket? who is going to be driving th
, and then to get some idea of how they might rule on this. portsmouth, rhode island, democratic caller. joe, go ahead. caller: i went through the court cases, the supreme court cases, brown vs. the board of education, etc. i want to make a personal comment. i took the s.a.t.'s with a black friend of mine from massachusetts, a basketball player who went on to play for jacksonville in the n.c.a.a. tournament. we both moaned and groaned over the s.a.t.'s. i think it was discrimination against both of us because we were from a poor neighborhood and never got the opportunity. a lot of the problem is the scholastic aptitude testing to get into college, which is discriminating both against poor white and black men, and women also. also, i think you cannot disregard women from discrimination in the past and what blacks went through in this country. i took a broader brush and took every minority -- they would take asians and everything into consideration, and this left the black man out of the picture to a large extent. i also feel that they should take more white men from neighborhoods that are disadva
in this country is to damn greedy. vicet's listen to president joe biden from a convention that took place a couple of weeks ago. they talk about the american dream. >> one more thing to our republican opponents are dead wrong about. america is not a in decline. america is not a denture decline. i have news for gov. romney. -- america is not in decline. it never makes sense -- it has never been a good bet to bet against the american people. never. [cheers and applause] my fellow americans, america is coming back. we are not going back. we have no intention of downsizing the american dream. host: vice-president joe biden at the convention in charlotte, north carolina. do you think the american dream has been downsized? omar is on our republican line. caller: good morning. the american dream -- spanish, i came from the dominican republic to live that dream. i am a small business owner. i have two businesses. the way that it is going, it is heading to collapse. it feels to me like it is a plan for the government to take over businesses. when you pay high taxes as a businessman and you cannot
. >> gretchen: he doesn't have the experience joe biden has. he's been on capitol hill and been in debate situations before. you think that nerves can play into this at all or is ryan used to be on center stage. >> ryan is well used to it. >> steve: he's a whiz kid. >> he is. this is a unique situation. you have the architect of the program on defending it. >> brian: the other thing is, if paul ryan . joe biden hasn't done an interview in five months and six days to prepare. >> not to prepare. they wanted him off of the road for six days. >> brian: he's not -- not been on for months. >> my book the black helicopters came out yesterday. we know that obama is raising taxes in his second term if he has it. the book said the un is going to impose a new form of taxation and do a income tax for billionaires and do away financial transaction tax that said every time you buy a stock or bond or currency you may a robin hood. tax on cigarettes and off shore oil drill tax on u.s. airline that is land in europe and all be done by treaty which means the president's signature. the senate's consent and
obama had a disasterous performance last week. so now there is added pressure on joe biden to actually super perform to try to make up some ground, the ground that obama lost since last week. >> bill: he can't possibly supper perform. >> you've got two things going on. it's east got a generational difference between biden who is 69 and the young paul ryan who is 42. the other thing is on the issue, you'll have a striking difference because biden is saddled with defending an economic record that failed. he's going up against the nation's top budget guy. >> bill: he's not going to say, obviously, the president will say it's succeeding. this is what the debate is. here is why i don't think it matters and then you can reply. people don't vote for vice president. this is all about romney and obama. this is what it is. biden is a known quantity. he's a very devoted liberal man. he's not going to go off the talking points. even though he once in a while he'll ad lib and get in trouble, here they're basically hitting him on the head right now. do not go off the talking points. do not say anyth
